How enterprise architecture (EA) can deliver its promised benefits remains an open question. The common assumption is that an EA program should be incrementally implemented (the maturing approach). But our research found that U.S. state governments are also using two other approaches, both of which take advantage of crisitunities: the refreshing approach, which updates an existing EA program in response to a radical IT change, and the bundling approach, where a radical IT change jump-starts the development of a new EA program. Based on three representative cases, e identify four lessons for creating a relevant EA program.Click here for podcast summary (mp3)Click here for free 2-page executive summary (pdf)Click here for free presentation slides (pptx)
